OUR BRATs Johor Baru camp starts tomorrow! And that means for the rest of the week, a bunch of talented teen writers, photographers and videographers will be out and about the city putting their skills to the test.

Guiding them on this four-day quest are R.AGE journalists Ian Yee, Lim May Lee and Vivienne Wong, who will each work with a group of these aspiring journalists, the best we could find from across the country.

The BRATs programme has been training teen journalists since 1993, organising three exciting, adventure-filled camps every year in cities across the country.

BRATs Johor Baru will be no different. The participants will get to visit the Legoland Water Park, and attend a live TV shoot at Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios!

But be warned – things are gonna get really competitive among the three teams ‘cos we here at R.AGE are always trying to outshine each other.

Yes, it’s survival of the fittest at our BRATs camp, so come prepared to do battle. And now, introducing #TeamIan, #TeamMayLee and #TeamVivienne!
